transport of an outboard from Pt Townsend to Victoria

Post by robhodge »

Hello- I'm looking for a help with transport of an outboard.

I'm sailing up from seattle to the start of the race, then competing in the first leg before sailing back to seattle. I'm trying to find someone that can help me by Transporting my kicker and a pair of gas cans from the race start to Victoria.

It's a little thing- a 1953 Johnson 3 hp weighs 35 lbs.

anyone know anyone driving from the start to the finish on race day, or motoring across?

I'm looking to get my 3.5hp mercury across again this year as well.. Last year a bigger sailboat took it.

That motor was essential in safely crossing back during a good weather window, and light wind.

Who else has a outboard that needs taken? Maybe we can talk somebody on the race committee with the van going to Victoria to load them up. I'm sure someone would like some ferry money!
